Fresh can 6.12.2018 and over all good beer but fell below hype. Compared to Gggreen and very green it was in 3rd.
Over all nothing stood out , didn’t have the nice bitterness of VG not the creamy hop taste of Gggreen.

From a 16oz can, dated 06/12/18. 'I've been thinking about getting metal less.' I don't know what that means. Served in a willi glass.

Pours a heavily murky, dull orange glass of juice with two-and-a-half fingers of soft, tight, cream-coloured lather that slowly settles back to a thick, dimpled layer of shaving cream. Retention is excellent and leaves a thick, sticky curtain of lacing.

A powerfully aromatic nose of sunbaked fruit basket, bubble gum and yeasty bread roll. It smells like I remember my first Julius smelling only with the dial cranked hard over to the right and jammed down with a brick.

The taste follows the nose, with every tropical fruit you care to name left out in the sun and run through the juicer, dense bready malt and dank funk. An exquisite composty bitterness lingers briefly at the finish, just long enough to put down the glass and pick it up again.

The feel is dense and doughy, smooth and silky, with a medium-hefty body and fine, light, tingly carbonation. The beer looks as though you had ought to be able to stand a straw up in it but, it turns out, you cannot and, yes, in fact I did try.

Overall, everything it's hyped up to be. Anyone else who, like me, was blown away by their first Julius and then disappointed by every can afterward that never quite measured up to the way they remembered it - it's like that first Julius, but with the volume turned up to eleven.

Finally...after trying the 2014 trial batch I get to try this rendition. Missed it every release for the past 2.5 years; I get to share this with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy golden hue with a nice one finger head that fades to leave light lacing and a creamy blanket.

S - Aromas of dank citrus, light tropical note, as it warms the dank citrus sweetness pops. Little pineapple and papaya. Flash of mango.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with nice bright oily citrus peel, little pithy notes, faint pineapple and tropical notes, the tangerine becomes sweeter as it warms. Pineapple pops too.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, little fluffy, spot on for Tree House.

O - Overall this was a rather underwhelming dipa. Enormous hype; it's rather good, but, there's better tropical bombs from Tree House.

Big thanks to rudzud
nice creamy foamy fizzy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly, nice foamy lacing, super murky hazy pale orange apricot color

Nose brings big citrus, mango, papaya, a little creamy tangerine orange juice, lots of pith, rind, and a bit dank, little generic citrus dank almost tropical, more generic citrus as it warms but mild like tangerine or Mandarin citrus, mild sweet creamy malt

TAste brings sweet creamy bases malt, lots of pith creamy wheat lots of pith and typical Tree House base wheat dough papery pulp base, plenty of tangerine cream and some mild orange like, some mango and papaya like notes, a little generic tropical but not much more of that mango and citrus, some bitterness later, more pith lingering, papery pulp like, little dry finish, touch sticky

Mouth is med bod, creamy and fair juicy, nice carb, soft, no real alcohol

Overall it's very similar to Julius but more papery pulp like and a bit more bitter with less super orange cream juice bomb, or the bad versions of Julius, this was not nearly the awesome beer I thought it would be, I mean it's good but not incredible

Initial reaction to this beer was WOW! A veritable cornucopia of fruit flavors: pineapple, papaya, mango, strawberry, nectarine, peach, tangerine, orange. The flavor shifted a bit as my glass of beer warmed up. Mouthfeel was awesome and the smells lingered a long time. However overall this was a bit much, toward the end I could taste the alcohol. I prefer very green and doubleganger over this beer. Fantastic beer though.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a teku glass.

Pours an opaque deep orange color with 2-fingers of off-white head. The retention is real, leaving an absurd amount of clingy lacing as it settles into a thick blanket of foam.

The Amarillo and Galaxy hops really shine in the nose. Lots of pineapples, peaches, grapefruit and orange followed by a wave of papaya, honeydew melons, and stone fruit.

The flavor is full of mangoes, papaya, melons and pineapples. There's plenty of citrus as well, bringing notes of clementines and orange flesh with some ruby red grapefruit. Not a ton of malt presence here. Just straight up hop sauce.

The feel is literally perfect. It's medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Incredibly soft, smooth, and creamy with a dry finish. The alcohol may as well not exist.

Overall, is this an incredible DIPA? Yes it is. Does it live up to the hype? Probably not. It's deliciously tropical and incredibly drinkable despite the ABV. It's definitely an amazing beer, but is it worth standing in line for 90 minutes for 2 cans? Not even close.
